Konstantinova, N.A. &
A.A. Vilnet. 2022. New data on
distribution, phylogenetic affinity and sporophyte of Nardia pacifica
Arctoa (2022) 31:
The liverwort Nardia
Bakalin recently described from Kamchatka is recorded
for the Caucasus and Alaska.
Molecular phylogenetic estimation based on two newly
sequenced and deposited in GenBank chloroplast DNA
markers – trnL-F and trnG-intron
– of the firstly studied type specimen of this species and specimens from these
two remote areas suggested their high similarity. The description and
microphotographs of male and female plants as well as sporophyte
are provided here for the first time. Morphological and molecular infraspecific variabilities are discussed.
